This dish is one of my all time favorites, try this though, spring and early summer is best. Buy whichever veggies you see in the market that strike you. I like a yellow squash, an ITalian eggplant, a couple cromini mushrooms, fresh green beans and snow peas, fresh spinach. Use your imagination. Cut ALL the vegetables to bite size, and steam over a large pot of boiling water, season well. Take out and put into an ice bath just before they lose their "bite" Then make the linguine (I prefer linguine fine or cappelini) in the same water. Transfer the veggies to a large saute pan, season again and pour in a pint of heavy cream and a half cup of grated parmigiano reggiano over low heat until heated through. Drain the pasta add it to the saute pan and toss to coat. EVERYONE will love it! It's all in using fresh ingredients, and seasoning properly. Serve on flat plates with more grated cheese on the table!
